Deputy President William Ruto indirectly hit out at his boss President Uhuru Kenyatta on Friday over his perceived backing of ODM leader Raila Odinga.

DP Ruto said he was betrayed after he helped Uhuru become President in 2013 and 2017 general elections.

Ruto spoke in Ruai, Kasarani constituency, where he was accompanied by a host of politicians from the Kenya Kwanza Alliance.

Among those present were Musalia Mudavadi (ANC), Moses Wetang’ula (Ford Kenya), Rigathi Gachagua (Mathira), Senator Johnstone Sakaja Bishop Margaret Wanjiru and aspirants from UDA.

Ruto said the cost of living has skyrocketed since the handshake between Uhuru and Raila, yet the pair did not seem worried.

He claimed Raila rocked the Jubilee boat and stalled the government’s Big Four agenda.

The DP told his Nairobi county supporters to reject the Azimio presidential aspirant, saying he has failed to help the President deliver on pledges.

He further said the hustler movement will help to stabilise the country by empowering the common Kenyan.

The UDA presidential aspirant said he will commit funds towards the creation of jobs to ensure the issue of unemployment is addressed.

Ruto said the majority of Kenyans blacklisted on CRB were small traders, who take loans from predatory sources because they lack collateral.

“My administration will pick up from where Uhuru left and I will set aside Sh100 billion as we had originally planned in Jubilee government, for housing, manufacturing, agro-processing and value addition,” he said.
